Major accumulations pushing SHIB to two-year high

Over the last 24 hours, Shiba Inu has demonstrated a mammoth-sized increase of over 70% and has reached a high of $0.00002250, last seen in April 2022. According to the Spot On Chain analytics data aggregator, aside from other factors, there were three major SHIB purchases that contributed to the aforementioned price increase.

During the last few days that preceded the price rally, a smart whale purchased a whopping 75.91 billion SHIB on Binance for $1.51 million and withdrew them. Currently, his profit constitutes $614,000 (69%).

The second major purchase was made by the founder of Maker DAO, @RuneKek. He acquired a staggering 7.41 billion SHIB for 100,000 USDT. The third buy here was made by a blockchain wallet related to the UPbit exchange — it accumulated 2.13 trillion SHIB over the past 24 hours. At the time of writing this, this wallet is ranked as the seventh largest SHIB address, and it holds 12.45 trillion Shiba Inu worth $247 million.
